Why is Glenn wearing a fur coat and holding a cat?

Have you ever seen the movie Love Actually? The opening of the film features a heartwarming montage of the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. The narrator explains how the jubilation and emotion on display in those moments of greeting and reunion prove – despite all the ill in the world – “love is, actually, all around.” On Wednesday’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn a slightly different approach to the classic movie scene, proving all you need to do is look at the news-of-the-day to prove hypocrisy is, actually, all around.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

To begin, Glenn donned a massive fur coat and stroked a black cat he satirically planned to make socks out of to highlight the irony of the bevy of Hollywood types who parade around in massive fur coats and leather pants as they condemn animal cruelty.

Moving right along… President Obama kicked off his Asian tour today in Japan. Later this week, he will become the first president since Lyndon B. Johnson to visit Malaysia. When you consider the laundry list of human rights violations enforced by the Malaysian government, one has to wonder why the Obama Administration has referred to the nation as an “emerging partner.”

According to CNS News, Malaysia engages in:

- Denial of legal status to some religious groups

- Restrictions on proselytizing and on the freedom to change one’s religion (except that members of other religions may convert to Islam)

- Marriages between Muslims and non-Muslims are not recognized by the state and children born of such marriages are considered illegitimate

- While Islamic religious instruction is compulsory for Muslim children in public schools, non-Muslim students are not allowed to take classes in their religion, but instead must take non-religious morals and ethics courses.

- The government prohibits publications, public events and debates which it says may incite racial or religious disharmony, including public discussions of issues such as religious freedom and apostasy.

Would President Obama be willing to look the other way if Malaysia was, say, a Christian nation? And oh by the way, the President will also be visiting a ‘friendly’ mosque during his time in the country,

Furthermore, in honor of Earth Day, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes declared fossil fuels the “new abolitionism.” Hayes believes the only way to avert “planetary disaster” will be to force  fossil fuel companies “to give up at least $10 trillion in wealth.”

Can you imagine the outrage that would ensue if a conservative compared some pet political cause to the fight to end slavery?! It’s safe to say Al Sharpton would be shouting ‘racism’ from the rooftops.

As Glenn explained, whether it is President Obama preaching income inequality while dining on $300 sushi in Japan or Al Gore continuing to lead the climate change crusade after selling Current TV to the oil rich Qatar, hypocrisy runs rampant, but it truly is a one-way street.

- What did you think of tonight’s show? Let Glenn know by emailing me@glennbeck.com

    Earth Day does not belong to the liberal left or the so-called “intellectual” elites. It belongs to “We the People” and celebrating the day has nothing to do with climate change or global warming. Here is a very different view of Earth Day as seen from the “grassroots:” http://eohistory.info/earthday2014.htm
    The Earth does not “belong” to people, but people are able to live on the Earth as long as they behave.

    Beck sounds more unwitting than ever. Obama ran on building an Asian Pacific military strategy. The military has determined that cooperation with Indonesia and other Southeast Asian countries is essential to US interests. Obama’s trip is important to furthering this military strategy. Beck really displays his idiocy on this one.

    Beck’s discovery of Hollywood hypocrisy is hardly insightful. For a guy who recently told Hollywood reporters that he hates politics and he’s wasting his life talking about it, Beck sure manages to find the most petty political topics to entertain his subscribers with.

  • Krimsen King

    haha what a wonderful clown he is… ok, not sure I’ve seen any ‘Hollywood types’ parading around in real fur in about 20 years or so. But aside from that, why is he defending oil companies??? They’ve actually watered down our gas (destroying engines btw), they’ve made historical, record-breaking profits while receiving record-breaking taxpayer subsidies. Not to mention, OIL IS A FINITE RESOURCE. It will soon run out. We can’t just keep drilling and drilling until there’s nothing left. We need new forms of energy production. Also not to mention… it’s really not good for us to pollute our planet burning all the petroleum products we can dig up. This is hardly a ‘pet political cause’… It’s actually one of the real, serious debates we need to have as a society. Fur-wearing Hollywood hypocrites… not so much.

    Soros Lib Troll Rule #12: Blame the Koch brothers.

  • Tmntr

    I’m pretty sure that’s troll rule number two, right behind the cry of racism. Lets ignore the fact that they are 59th on the list of republican donors while unions are number one on the list of democrat donors, way out giving the Koch brothers. Lets also ignore that, if I’m not mistaken, they actually fight against big business bailouts.

  • landofaahs

    The Koch brothers are guilty of being rich and successful and not being liberals. That is why you hate them and why you are a hypocrite because you don’t seem to hate rich liberals. Go pound sand you liberal hack.

  • Michael David Davis

    Nowhere is he presenting this as a “discovery” or “sudden realization” on his part. Furthermore, is your rule that we should only talk about things we love??? We shouldn’t talk about things we hate?? Politics are DESTROYING this nation. Of course he hates politics. Are you suggesting, however, that he just “Shut up”??? Finally, please look up the meaning of “unwitting.” The way you use it here makes no sense.

  • Anonymous

    Unwitting: “Unaware because of a lack of relevant information or knowledge”.

    Glenn stated he’s wasting his life talking about politics. I’m simply pointing out that for a guy that thinks he’s wasting his life talking about politics, he sure does a lot of it.

    Malaysia is a Muslim nation and a dirt hole for that matter. Handling the lost jet explains how inept that country is. Have you not notice that Obama only deals with the small countries with threats and assistance. Reason is that they eat his BS and he can bully them around.

    I agree that people who eat meat and wear leather are hypocrites when they spout off about fur coats. As an ethical vegetarian/vegan. I do not use any animal products or exploit them, to the best of my knowledge. I almost agreed with you for the first time ever. Until you had to blame it all on those disgusting liberals. The reaction you got from your followers about non-violence demonstrates that You are the problem

    And you do not blame everything on Obama and Soros? and what ever Beck says. Do your homework about the Koch brothers. They are buying elections, thru the legislators and their corporations. $ has always been the downfall of politics but they are taking it to a new level of obscenity. But i guess that is OK with you because you agree with their philosophy.

    Like the Trail of Tears (democrat), Civil War (democrat), Spanish American war (supp by dems, opposed by Mckinley), WWI (democrat), WWII (democrat, rescuing USSR from Hitler, and ChiComs, whom they supported also), Korea (democrat), Vietnam (democrat). Those were the major wars. Skirmishes and small wars etc. belong to both sides. Let’s not discount that Guantanamo is still very open, and Afghanistan was sending back more body bags under Obama’s best day than Bush’s worst for five years. Christians cheering for ‘every war that comes by’ is reflection on your part.

    Glenn did not say that Obama went to Asia to raise awareness on “income inequality”.

    Obama said that he would spend the rest of his presidency on “income inequality”. Then he goes to Asia and lives it up like the super rich while on his business trip. There’s nothing inherently wrong with being super rich. The problem is that Obama has positioned himself against the rich.

I just unsubscribed last week and un-liked him on all pages. He has lost our support. I check in at times like tonight, to see what he is saying and doing now. I feel betrayed. I just don’t get it. He has lost his way. Maybe because his approach is not making a difference in the titanic sinking, he is cracking up?

    You should know the president has more than one issue to work on. Obama has publicized a strategic shift to Asia Pacific for his entire presidency. The key to this strategy is communication and diplomacy. This trip is consistent with this well known plan. What amenities and security would you expect any POTUS to have during travel? Asian airlines, buses and cheap motels? Be real.

    you are mistaken, actually. But that aside, should our elections really be a battle of which group can generate the most cash to pay our politicians??? How can we consider these ‘free and fair’ elections when our politicians ALWAYS go to the highest bidder??? Obviously, they cease to be elected representatives…

  • Krimsen King

    it’s not about ‘hate’, lando… it’s about the massive consolidation of power in the hands of a very few people. It actually doesn’t even matter what their political party or ideology is anymore. When our politicians are ALL bought and sold to the highest bidder, the voices of WE THE PEOPLE are diminished, at this point, to almost nothing.

    Have you ever been to Malaysia Landtree?

  • parawarrior6

    I am going to say most probably not just for the sake of argument. Both Malaysia and Indonesia has some very intelligent people. Their religion holds them back to the dark ages. And, that is why the country does not progress, just like the Central Asia, The middle east and Africa. Get rid of Islam and the countries will flourish. Disliking a theocracy is not racism or bigotry. It does however come into direct conflict with a theocratic, misogynist, hate filled political system bent on taking over the world through oppression, murder and pedophilia.

    2 Timothy 3:16
    16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
    Jesus says IT IS WRITTEN to Satan who misquotes the word of God.
    Matthew 4:4
    4 But he answered and said, IT IS WRITTEN, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
    Matthew 4:5-11
    Then the Devil taketh Him up into the Holy City, and setteth Him on a pinnacle of the Temple,
    and saith unto Him, if Thou be the Son of God, cast Thyself down; for it is written, He shall give His angels charge concerning Thee, and in their hands they shall bear Thee up, lest at any time Thou dash Thy foot against a stone.
    Jesus said unto him IT IS WRITTEN Again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”
    Matthew 4:8
    8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
    Matthew 21:42
    42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never READ in the SCRIPTURES, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
    2 Thessalonians 2:15
    15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
    Proverbs 30:5-6
    5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
    6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
    Mark 7:6-8
    6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
    7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
    8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
    Colossians 2:8
    8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
    1 Corinthians 14:33
    33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

    the only fact I challenged was the donation thing… and I’m pretty sure republicans are WAY outraising democrats. Again, though, this is not really any significant signal for anything but the FACT that ALL of our representative ONLY go to the highest bidder, and the FACT that this INHERENTLY corrupts ALL OF THEM, regardless of political party or ideology. Care to challenge any of those facts?

  • Tmntr

    Nope. Sorry, I misunderstood you. I also apologize for my sarcasm- that was uncalled for. It is definitely a conundrum we are in concerning where all of our politicians are getting their money from, and what they are expected to return to their donors in terms of favors.

  • Tyler Carraway

    Or how about simply talking about the government?
    Can we at least agree that that is pretty bad? And by “pretty bad,” I am giving a gross understatement.
    The people are not equal to the country.

    I can say Russia was a bad country while it was being run by Stalin without hating Russians. In fact, it is my care for people in general, including Russians, that makes me care in the first place about the horrors Stalin and the Soviet government did to its own people.

    So, maybe you should stop, check your OWN perspective, and realize that people who criticize Malaysia and what it does are probably doing it because they care about Malaysians.
